Hong Kong’s Mott 32 expands to Las Vegas

Mott 32, one of Hong Kong’s upscale fine dining spots, will open its first US outpost this winter, at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas, bringing along some of its signature dishes including the apple wood roasted Peking duck.

This is the restaurant’s third overseas outpost following openings in Bangkok and Vancouver.

“We wanted to do something different by bringing a little of Hong Kong to Las Vegas. Mott 32 is one of the only upscale Cantonese restaurants born in the Far East that will come to The Strip,” said Patrick Lang, vice president of restaurant and nightlife development for Las Vegas Sands.

“Mott 32 is known for stunning design, innovative yet authentic Chinese cuisine, delicious hand-crafted cocktails and first-class service wrapped up in a vibrant, energetic environment. It is a unique brand that appeals to both Western and Asian customers perfect for our guests at The Venetian.”

The name Mott 32 comes from New York’s first Chinese convenience store that opened in 1891 at 32 Mott Street and was the nucleus for what is now a vibrant Chinatown in one of the most exciting cities in the world.

According to the restaurant, farm-to-table cooking is at the heart of its menu. Led by group executive chef Man-Sing Lee – a two-Michelin star chef in his previous role – and Vegas-based head chef Alan Ji, Mott 32’s culinary team makes dishes from a mix of Cantonese, Sichuan, and Beijing cuisine.

Some of the restaurant’s signature dishes will be included at the Las Vegas outpost such as the apple wood roasted Peking Duck with Mott 32’s “Signature Cut,” barbecue pluma Iberico pork glazed with Yellow Mountain Honey, Iberico pork with soft quail egg and black truffle Siu Mai and crispy triple cooked wagyu beef short ribs.

The designs at the new restaurant will also pay tribute to the history of Las Vegas – from a dining table made out of a vintage Roulette wheel to the chandelier adorned with a feather boa.

“This is a most exciting period in our company’s history,” said Malcolm Wood, founder & group managing director of Maximal Concepts. “With the addition of its fourth global branch, set to open in Las Vegas, Mott 32 will reinforce its position as the leading luxury Chinese restaurant around the world. We’re excited to introduce the U.S. to a unique, luxurious yet comfortable fine-dining experience with a standard of authentic Chinese cuisine that does not exist here yet.”

Mott 32 will be located inside The Palazzo at The Venetian Resort, spanning 11,715 square feet with five private dining rooms, and can accommodate up to 242 diners at any one time. The restaurant will be open for dinner seven days a week.
